The Black History Month Committee has planned $6,450 worth of events to celebrate Black History Month.

The committee has planned a talent show, concerts, speeches and even a dating game.

The events are not solely for entertainment purposes but for the educational value.

Take the opportunity to learn about African-American history through the events.

The events started Tuesday and go on through Feb. 28.

It will be a chance for students to learn about prominent African-American leaders and culture.

The alliance also is sponsoring a talent show in which winners will be awarded scholarships.

It’s important for students of all races to learn African-American history because it is an important part of American history.

Much great literature has been written about the enslavement of African-Americans like “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

It also helps to learn about mistakes that people made so similar events don’t occur again.

Participating in Black History Month events can be a fun way to learn something new. Today you can enlighten yourself with a gospel concert at 7 p.m., and on Feb. 14, Dr. Tani Sanchez will be delivering a lecture at 10:50 a.m.

Take advantage of the events. You may even get a T-shirt out of it.
